You know how sometimes your tastes progress and CD's are left collecting dust, and then some time after you feel the sudden urge to listen to that CD again? Well I recently felt that with Logic Will Break Your Heart, The Stills' debut album. I remember absolutely loving that Montreal post-punk sound, and I still do now.

I decided to see if The Stills had a new album out (as one was due), and at the time it was near release. So I awaited its release eagerly, and when it was released I was very surprised, and disappointed. The sound and style has totally changed. Now I have nothing against bands changing their direction, if it's a prosperous direction; this is not the case with Without Feathers. Greg Paquet, the guitarist on the Logic album whom I respect alot, has left the band due to musical differences (I can understand why). Dave Hamelin (the drummer) has replaced Greg on guitar, found a new drummer and now that Liam guy has grown a beard and joined the band full-time, playing keys.

Without Feathers sounds alot more optimistic, piano is found everywhere; it generally sounds more pop than previous. Hamelin seems to have become a joint frontman. Nothing really jumps out on this record; there's certainly no radio hits here.

If you're expecting the sound and the slightly immature and angst lyrics (which were actually very good) from Logic, then you'll be deeply disappointed, as was I. With The Stills, I do feel that I've lost something that I will never get back. Hopefully The Stills will revert or Greg Paquet will start a new project.

Markedly different from their angular,downbeat debut album this Montreal five piece have returned with a bravely bittersweet sequel.

Lyrically we're still on the same level of fustration,lost love and noughties angst but musically this is an earthier,more varied album. Its not actually better than "Logic"(from 2004) but is still a very interesting album,lyrically and musically.

There is less intricate guitars and punchy melodies, "Without Feathers" relies heavily on piano and minimal guitar. In this way it is fairly original as it doesnt sound like the tedious piano-led non-entities that dominate the charts.Drummer Dave Hamelin sings the bulk of these tracks,unlike the first album.

Sadly, The Stills are miles from chart action but that makes them even greater. This is a real grower...Canadian folk/blues/post-rock combo....

Having loved almost every track on Logic Will Break Your Heart, i was anticipating big things from the follow up but unfortunately i've found this album disappointing. From the opening bars of In The Beginning something immediately didn't feel right. The urgency and intensity from the debut is absent pretty much throughout and if you enjoyed the 80's post punk feel of Logic Will Break Your Heart then i'm afraid for me it's just not here.

The only way to describe this is a re-invention, a new direction if you will, and I guess you have to say The Stills have been brave in making such a bold move but they may find their core audience alienated by this.

I must say I'm battling to hear the 'more upbeat' side of this album other reviewers have written about. I find the new vocalist a bit dreary and one song sounds too much like the other. Like a Strokes album, I only end up listening to half before needing a change. Its far from bad and clearly some people are preferring more complicated song structures but I personally miss the hooks and melodies of Logic. I really hope that they put an end to this swoppsy for their next album and get back to what they started first time round.

for fans of the first stills album "lola stars and stripes", it may be slightly strange at first to listen to this album where most of the songs are sung by the former drummer - Dave Hamelin. However when you consider the fact that he writes most of the songs anyway and sings one of the best songs on their debut album ("Yesterday never tomorrows"), it suddenly doesnt seem to matter.

the songs are musically more complex than the first album - with much stronger guitar work and powerful lyrics, loaded with images of frozen tundra. gone is the self pity that i feel made the first album sound slightly immature, replaced with a more aggressive tone (e.g "i will destroy you").

the best songs are "The Mountain", "She's Walking Out", "Helicopters", "Oh Shoplifter", "Halo the Harpoons" and "Baby Blues". Although there are good points in every song of the album. In my opinion the worst song is "In the End".

one point to note is that this album hasnt been actually released in the uk. this is quite baffling but hopefully this will be remedied soon so that a european tour can take place.

cheers

I agree with the other review - this isnt BETTER than Logic, its different. Some of the songs are utter brilliance. Its a shame that the album hasnt done so well - personally i think it has gotten poor publicity. I saw them live supporting Kings on Leon and the songs were great live - even if I was the only one singing all the words!!!!!

I was fortunate enough to stumble across the Stills on youtube recently and I instantly became addicted to their sound.

Most of the reviews here will tell you that it's not as good as their last record 'Logic will break your heart' and that it sounds too different. That's all fine, you're entitled to your own opinion but when you give an album 2 stars purely for being different you completely mislead people. The fact is that this is still a brilliant album!

Dave Hamelin definitely brings something more to the band by being a co-frontman (besides his ego).

The album is full of deep, clever lyrics, great vocals from both Hamelin and Tim Fletcher, catchy guitar hooks with just the right amount of complexity and the piano/organ combination is an absolute winner (very similar to Rami Jaffee's work in the Wallflowers). There's upbeat, anthemic songs like 'It takes time', 'Oh, shoplifter' and my favourite 'Destroyer' (who can resist falling in love with those trumpets?!) and plenty of more mellow tracks to keep fans of their earlier work happy.

So whether you're already familiar with The Stills or just looking for a new band to listen to, give them a try on youtube and then buy this excellent indie/alt rock album.

PS: Buy the US Import version, the song list and order on the UK version is all wonky.
